Cristiano Ronaldo named American Tourister brand ambassador
Football superstar and fashion icon Cristiano Ronaldo has been appointed American Tourister brand ambassador.
Ronaldo is the holder of the FIFA Ballon d’Or Award for a record fifth time. The former Manchester United and now Real Madrid record goal-scorer has won 24 trophies, including four UEFA Champions League titles. He also captained Portugal to victory in the 2016 UEFA European Championship.
He has a global following of more than 230 million fans across Facebook and Instagram, and his appointment comes as Moscow prepares to host the FIFA World Cup in June.
“There couldn’t be a better time to bring Cristiano on board,” says Asia Pacific president Subrata Dutta of Samsonite, which owns the American Tourister luggage brand.
Ronaldo says that as a frequent traveller he appreciates the need for high-quality luggage that “still allows you to express your personality”.
